‘The Last O.G.’ has delivered its last laugh.
Four years after making history for TBS with the blockbuster ratings that accompanied its premiere, the Tracy Morgan-led comedy has been axed from the network after four seasons.
Co-created and executive produced by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele, the scripted series – unknown to viewers at the time – concluded with the December 21 airing of its season 4 finale.
‘O.G.’ told the story of an ex-con who was learning to cope with the challenges of navigating the modern world after a 15-year prison stint.
Formerly starring popular comedienne Tiffany Haddish, the show picked up a number of industry award nominations including mentions at the BET Awards, NAACP Image Awards, and People’s Choice Awards over its four-year stint.
‘O.G.’ wasn’t the only TV favorite to get the boot recently.
Reports surfaced Thursday (May 12) that beloved CW superhero drama ‘Naomi’ couldn’t be saved and was cut from the network’s roster after just one season.
Like ‘O.G.,’ ‘Naomi’ – based on the DC Comics character of the same name – launched to stellar ratings in January but those numbers quickly dwindled over the weeks that followed.
Written and executive-produced by the EMMY-winning, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and television producer Ava DuVernay, ‘Naomi’ (which stars Kaci Walfall as its titular heroine) “followed a cool, confident and previously bespectacled Black teenager as she came to realize her hidden destiny and journeyed to the heights of the multiverse in search of the full truth of who killed her parents and why.”
Its May 10 episode served as its final showing.
